Saving The Day – Katie Fforde (Quick Reads 2021)


Twenty-year-old Allie knows it’s time to make some changes in her life.

She’s bored with her day-job and is beginning to wonder whether she even likes her boyfriend, Ryan.

The high point in her day is passing a small cafe on her walk home from work. Filled with happy customers and with plates of biscuits and cakes stacked high on the counter, it is the sort of place where she’d really like to work.

Then one day she sees an advert on the door: assistant wanted. But before she can land her dream job, Allie knows she must achieve two things.

1. Learn to cook.

2. End her relationship with Ryan, especially as, through the window of the cafe, she spies a waiter who looks much more like her type of man.

And when she learns that the cafe is threatened with closure, Allie knows she must do her very best to save the day…


Naturally I read this quick read in only one sitting! It was easy to read and follow and was a great uplifting story!

It managed to make me really dislike Ryan’s character in only a few pages which is impressive.

I did feel like Allie was written as a much younger character that she was supposed to be but overall enjoyable, simple, with good flow.

I love the quick reads books and the idea behind them. Great to pick up to break up a tbr and also to recommend to someone who might not be a seasoned reader!


  1. I think Katie Fforde is great for a light read when you just want a book to relax with. Haven’t read this one so need to look out for it ready for the holidays.
